No 829: Where is beta going ? the riskiness of value and small stocks

Francesco Franzoni ()

Abstract: This paper finds that the market betas of value and small stocks have decreased by about 75% in the second half of the twentieth century. The decline in beta can be related to a long-term improvement in economic conditions that made these companies less risky.
